Creating a new cactus (cell tower that is) ~

I thought this was a very interesting "work in progress" - a cell tower disguised as a saguaro cactus. This big fake cactus is being erected on Houghton Road near the Tucson McGraw's restaurant and will join a forest of other similar camouflaged towers on that hill to add some additional signals to the area. Cactus Power!

  1. I saw one of those when we were in Tucson. They almost look real except they are gigantic! I like them better than the ones around here that are supposed to look like a pine tree!

  2. I've seen the big Palm Tree camouflages whose fronds are always a lovely green that never go brown (so useful after a deep freeze winter!), but the saguaro ones are new to me and judging by the height of that scissor machine (and Roberta's comment!) that is a mammoth cactus! Half built as it is, it looks like it's signalling something else in the universe besides cell phones...;-)

  3. Yes, they are huge - and FAT! We also have some of the palm tree ones in town. I posted a photo of one in 2011 and here's the link:http://www.tucsondailyphoto.com/2011/04/permanent-palm-green-full-fake.html

  4. Cell phones can affect internal pacemakers, but there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they cause adverse health affects in humans. Conversely, there is not conclusive or demonstrated evidence that they don't cause adverse health affects in humans. Used Verizon Phones For Sale
